Communist Basketball Game

Communist Basketball Game

When you grow up in Ft. Wayne, IN and you put in your 10,000 hours playing basketball in your back yard, you just know you are going to end up playing for the Indiana Hoosiers. By 7th grade, when you realize you don’t have the skill or size to compete, you give up on organized basketball and begin to play pick-up games. And finally, after a long search, you happen upon an amazing group of strangers that play the game you love on a dilapidated second-floor church. Communist Basketball Game is the story of what happens when that lifelong search is suddenly threatened by a tyrannical basketball bully. How do you win back the soul of a game overrun by someone you cannot avoid? How do you win back the soul of anything when a tyrant takes over?
